I stayed here twice on my recent trip to Egypt, with the problems in Cairo it was safer to be a little further out and travel in for the sights. I booked through the internet and got an amazing deal.
The mini bus pick ups are at the door to the metro and from there you can get to most of Cairo.
Giza pyramids were 10 minutes by road or certainly walking distance if you enjoyed walking.
The rooms were very comfortable and there was a good selection for breakfast. Free internet and friendly helpful staff. After reading the reviews I was a little doubtful about the area but found it no better or worse than other areas in Cairo. Locals were friendly, plenty of eating places and local shopping centre. I hired a car on two seperate days to go further afield and was well looked after.
Prices in the hotel were a lot more expensive than outside but thats often the case.
I would certainly go back.More
